Two thousand years ago, Rome was the center of the civilized world and the most powerful city-state in existence. At its height, the influence of the Roman empire spanned from Scotland to Spain to Syria. Today's world has been largely influenced by ancient Rome as well: Democratic governments, modern literature and films, architecture and even professional football owe something of a debt to the ancient Romans.
